This paper presents a novel attitude synchronization framework for tracking control of multiple identical/heterogeneous satellites in formation flying with connected communication graph. The main contribution of the paper is considering sensors' measurement error to derive control gains. Moreover, the proposed strategy need no angular velocity communication. Nevertheless, the tracking synchronization among the satellites' attitudes with individual set-points is guaranteed. Accordingly, based on the Lyapunov criterion, uniformly ultimately boundedness of the synchronization/tracking errors are investigated. The simulation results are presented to illustrate the performance of the developed algorithm.
